I saw a piece about a number of houses for sale in some of the more rural parts of France, including Brittany. I loved taking the Eurostar from London to Paris and watching the wonderful country houses flash by. I would take any one of these.
This house has two bedrooms and is a 20-minute drive from the coastal town of Vannes, and 10 minutes from the market town of Malestroit. It’s €117,000 ($164,000) plus notaire’s fees. I love the blue on the shutters! WOW!An attractive old farmhouse with outbuildings in Côtes-d’Armor, 20km from the coast. It is on the market at €141,750 ($199,400) plus notaire’s fees. The long French windows are great.
This spacious four-bedroom former convent near Puy l’Evêque, on the market for £376,415 ($614,860), would have cost 20% more two years ago. It has its own pool too. Check out the niche with the statue to the right of the front door. Too bad about the cheezy plastic furniture.
This two-bedroom house with a small garden may need quite a bit of tender loving renovation, but has had its price cut to €50,020 ($70,529) plus notaire’s fees. It’s located in a small rural hamlet in central Brittany.Which is your favourite?
